I finally I was able to load grub2/refind/elilo/efishell from the
32bitUEFI-only but cannot boot any kernel (nomodeset etc,). The screen just
shows "Loading linux... Loading initial ramdisk, Trying to terminate EFI
services again" and no more sign of life, so it seems the kernel crashes
immediately, no one single printk output, so I'm curious to know if it's
only a matter of gpu or are there other lockins? Any hint (.config, boot
params, specific source tree etc.) will be appreciated.

Yes I'll do.
